Using serial sections obtained from its entire body, a three-dimensional reconstruction (3DR) analysis was performed on theConflicts of interest:None declared. smallest cyst to analyse the relationship between the epidermoid cyst, eccrine duct and the overlying epidermis. Results Histological and DNA–DNA in situ hybridization analyses demonstrated both homogeneous intracytoplasmic inclusion bodies pathognomonic for HPV 60 infection and HPV 60 DNA sequences not only in all of the epidermoid cysts and ridged warts but also in the acrosyringeal portion of an eccrine duct, with the dermal portion of which the smallest cyst had been revealed to connect by 3DR analysis. However, immunohistochemical analyses using antibodies against human carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA), involucrin and several cytokeratins (CKs) revealed that the immunoreactivity of the cyst was not identical to that of the eccrine dermal duct but was identical to that of suprabasal layers of the epidermis. Conclusions It was clearly demonstrated that an HPV 60-associated epidermoid cyst with immunoreactivities for CEA, involucrin and CKs which were identical to those of the epidermis connected with the eccrine dermal duct, supporting the idea that certain palmoplantar epidermoid cysts may develop following the epi- dermoid metaplasia of eccrine ducts with HPV 60 infection.Epidermoid cysts of palmoplantar location (palmoplantar epi- epidermoid cysts, with or without infection by human papil-dermoid cysts) have been described as being caused by lomavirus (HPV) 60,5 and therefore proposed the alternativeimplantation of epidermal fragments into the dermis as a pathogenic hypothesis that certain palmoplantar epidermoidresult of a penetrating or blunt injury.1 However, this assump- cysts may develop from eccrine ducts and that HPV 60 maytion has been questioned, and the necessity of a search for a play a role in this development.

Egawa et al.infection from injuries as they do occasionally develop afterinjuries3,6 and are mainly located beneath the weight-bearingareas of the foot, i.e. the balls and heels.7 Indeed, Abe et al.8 and Ohnishi and Watanabe9 questionedthe hypothesis of an ‘eccrine duct origin of the epidermoidcyst’ on the basis of the immunoreactivities of several cyto-keratins (CKs) which were not identical to those of sweatglands and ducts but were identical to those of suprabasallayers of the epidermis in plantar epidermoid cysts with HPVinfection. However, Egawa et al.10 proposed the idea that such a CKprofile in HPV-associated palmoplantar epidermoid cysts mightbe a reflection of the epidermoid metaplasia of the eccrineduct epithelium in the process of cyst formation in the eccrineducts, as it was revealed that the CK profile of cholesteatomas,which are histologically defined as epidermoid cysts develop-ing in the middle ear,11 cannot be used as a variable to decidewhether the origin of epidermoid cysts is epidermal or meta-plastic.12 Thus, the origin of palmoplantar epidermoid cysts isstill controversial. Three-dimensional reconstruction (3DR) analysis from serialsections is now a powerful tool for increasing our comprehen-sion of the relationships among structural components, for theindication of the connections between components, and forrevealing the distribution of components.13–15 In the presentstudy, using serial sections obtained from the entire body ofan epidermoid cyst, we attempted 3DR analysis to demon- Fig 1.
